Anonymous hackers, most likely Muslims, have published a statement to announce the start of a new campaign. It’s called OpPetrol and it will be launched on June 20, 2013.
The campaign is aimed at several countries and governments whose wrongdoings are, in the hackers’ views, somehow connected to oil.
The list of targets comprises the US, Canada, England, Israel, the Saudi Arabian government, China, Italy, France, Russia, Germany, and the governments of Kuwait and Qatar.
“We defend our dignity and the dignity of all races, even if they are not Muslims. We are not racists. You can call us Jihadists or ‘terrorists,’ whatever you want, but the REAL terrorists know who they are, and so do we,” the hackers stated.
“They are the killers of innocents, the stealers of land, dignity, rights, and resources; they are the creators of the bombs, drones, and surveillance technologies that have stolen all that is sacred from us.”
Hackers News Bulletin reports that hackers have already leaked email addresses and associated passwords allegedly belonging to Saudi Arabian government officials.
